Catalog Search

First: Search for books in the catalog

The GW catalog can be used to search for books in Gelman and other Consortium Libraries. You can search for books or journals by the title, keyword, author, subject heading and call number in English or using transliteration (see the Romanization guides below).

Notes on searching in transliteration:

1. The diacritical marks (lines over letters, dots under letters, etc.) shown in the romanization tables are not necessary for searching in our catalogs.

2. If your search term starts with "al", do not include it when searching. For example, search for "Andalus," not "al-Andalus." If "al" appears later in the title, however, it should be included.
